“Navigators. A journey into Sanlorenzo's shipyards” at Still Gallery in Milan

by Sanlorenzo 17 Oct 09:13 UTC 19 October - 15 November 2020

After the exhibition at Casa dei Tre Oci in Venice on the occasion of the 2019 Biennale Arte, the exhibition "Navigators. A journey into the Sanlorenzo shipyards" arrives in Milan.

From 19 October to 15 November, Sanlorenzo, one of the world's leading producers of yachts and superyachts, chooses to tell its story in the spaces of the STILL Gallery in Milan, a space dedicated to the world of art photography and contemporary art, founded and directed by Denis Curti.

Conceived as a true first hand look at what's involved in the production process at our shipyards, the exhibition is to feature more than 30 black and white images by photographer Silvano Pupella, who uses his lens to give us a visual tale of the harmony between craftsmanship and technology that has over the last 60 years made Sanlorenzo a veritable nautical excellence.

The evocative photographic portfolio which was put together within the La Spezia shipyard, reveals how each Sanlorenzo superyacht is the result of a complex, transversal and innovative project: each boat over 40 meters long, comes to life from the hull, forged in metal like some work of art, and on through the work of skilled local artisans who take the greatest of care with every little detail, making each pieace unique and special, thereby assuring the desired reaction from the owner every time.

The photos of Silvano Pupella thus recount the work of these highly skilled artisans whose masterful craftsmanship makes these sophisticated elegant yachts what they are, as if they were being crafted in a Renaissance workshop.

His decisive black and white, introducing us at the initial production stages of the steel superyachts, is able to excite enhancing the hidden charm and the intrinsic beauty of the unfinished products.

The spatial expansions which Sanlorenzo succeeded in adding to his projetcs, as these images state most clearly, amaze and even overturn the perception of the limit that one always has on board these self-propelled jewels. Images that, documenting the various preparatory stages of the metal hulls, can perfectly relate the atmosphere of this place full not only of technology but also of precious and irreplaceable practicality.

This project, which was born from an idea of Mr. Massimo Perotti, Executive Chairman of the company, once again shows Sanlorenzo's ability to embrace new and creative languages to talk about itself and offer new perspectives regarding the world of boating and Made in Italy.

This decision, this philosophy, has linked the company to the world of art and design over the years, with direct participation in some of the most important events in these worlds.

Among the most important collaborations with Galleries and cultural institutions we can include: La Triennale di Milano, during the FuoriSalone del Mobile 2017 and 2018, with the displays "Sanlorenzo: The sea in Milan", which has been awarded with ADI Compasso d'Oro 2020, and "The sea in Milan: Yachtville" and together with Tornabuoni Art gallery, the company organised exhibitions on board his own yachts dedicated to the Italian Monocromo and Alighiero Boetti during the Art Basel Miami Beach event in 2016 and the 57th Art Biennale event in Venice.

In this coherent and transversal path, in 2018 Sanlorenzo signed a global partnership agreement with Art Basel the world's leading art fair for modern and contemporary art, for the annual appointments in Hong Kong in March, Basel in June and Miami Beach in December.

In 2020, Sanlorenzo also becomes the Institutional Patron of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice, the most important museum in Italy for European and American 20th-century art.
